"Being a League member has greatly expanded my life! When I joined LWV of Wake County, NC, affordable housing and comprehensive sex education were my primary interests. Eventually, I became chair of the education committee and then League president.

During this period I worked to build coalitions with like-minded organizations and to extend the League presence in the community. We also offered Running & Winning workshops that promoted public service by bringing together young women and elected female officials.

Upon relocating to Bethesda, MD, my husband and I joined LWV of Montgomery County. Hugh is a member of the LWVMD electricity study, and I am now serving on the LWVUS Volunteer Lobby Corps and as an LWVUS Ruth S. Shur Fellow."
